1. I wanted to give everybody a heads up on a change that I'm going to make for folks who want to use the For Sale section of the forum.

    The forum has been running strong for almost 11 years now and I (along with our awesome moderators) have tried to keep things running smooth and trouble free during that time. I'm thankful for everyone who has helped make this a great community to participate in.

    As you can imagine, there are some expenses that are involved in maintaining a site like this and I've tried my best to keep from passing that expense onto the user over the years. The forum will always be a free resource for people to communicate, learn and share.

    In order to offset some of the expenses that the site creates, I'm going to be changing the Gold Membership upgrade on the forum. Starting on April 1, 2017 the current "Gold Member" upgrade will be renamed "Pro Member" and this $20 annual upgrade will be required for posting items in the For Sale section. All members and visitors will still be able to view the For Sale section for free, but a Pro Membership upgrade of $20/year will be required for listing items in that section for sale. Current Gold Members will be converted to Pro Members and will have access to listing items for sale until their current upgrade expires.

    http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?account/upgrades

    Thank you for your understanding and I will give further updates as the upgrade date approaches.

    Steve

    Thanks. The pigment is made from dust gathered from the surface of Mars. The color from Saturn is really nice also but the stuff from Uranus is crap. :roll: :lol:

    Are you sure the pigment is from Mars?........It MIGHT be from Uranus, it seems to Klingon very well!

    :lol: :lol: :lol: It just wouldn't be a proper 'Space Bike Build' without at least one 'Klingons on Uranus' bit of humor, now would it? :D I hope this paint job has a better Klingon factor than the last bike I did. It was very humid in my garage the only day I had available to paint. I could scrape it off with my thumbnail.

    Baby! Baby! I have decided to change the craft's name to JET SCREAMER!
    Did a bit more paint work today. I added the silver. I still have to pin stripe it between colors. I'm thinking black or white. leaning towards black. I also have the chaingaurd sand blasted and ready for paint.

    Beautiful.
    What a great frame!
    A very comfortable looking stance.

    The paint is great too.

    This is the seat I'll be using. It is on its way as I write this. Can't wait to get it. I need some grips to match if anyone has some.

    Here are the wheels and tires I'll be using. There Araya 26" x 1-3/8" hoops laced to a Bendix 70 hub. The front hub is German. The tires actually have a silver reflective strip that should work nice with the silver accents. Just say no to fat tires! :D Don't get me wrong, there cool. I just like doing things that are different.

    I got both the tires and wheels from a girls 70's Columbia (which also had a brooks matress saddle on it) I picked up on the CL for $20. The wheels were a little wavy at first but there just fine now. The hub inards are cleaned, bagged and ready for installation. The tires are almost new.
